UK leadership favourite Truss U-turns on pay plan in first big misstep

03 Tháng Tám 2022

By Andrew MacAskill and Kylie MacLellan

LONDON (Reuters) -Britain's foreign minister Liz Truss, the frontrunner to replace Boris Johnson as prime minister, was forced to backtrack on one of her most striking pledges a day after announcing it following a backlash from fellow Conservatives and opposition parties.

In the first big misstep of her campaign, Truss set out plans to save billions of pounds a year in government spending in a pledge opponents said would require cutting the pay of public sector workers, including nurses and teachers, outside of the wealthy southeast of England.

Truss had said late on Monday she would introduce regional pay boards rather than having a national pay agreement, tailoring pay to the cost of living where people actually work.

But after criticism on Tuesday, a spokesperson for Truss said: "Our hard-working frontline staff are the bedrock of society and there will be no proposal taken forward on regional pay boards for civil servants or public sector workers."

The U-turn came as a poll showed Truss with a smaller lead over her rival Rishi Sunak than previously thought.

A survey of 807 Conservative Party members by Italian data company Techne carried out July 19-27 found Truss was backed by 48%, compared with 43% for former finance minister Sunak.

The result suggests a much tighter race than a previous poll of Conservative members carried out by YouGov on July 20-21, which gave Truss a 24-point lead over Sunak.

'SPEECHLESS'

Truss's public sector pay plan had faced criticism from the main opposition Labour Party and some Conservative lawmakers.

The Conservatives won the biggest majority in three decades at the 2019 national election by upending conventional British politics and winning in more industrial areas in central and northern England with a pledge to reduce regional inequalities.

One Truss-supporting Conservative lawmaker said the miscalculation would damage the rest of the campaign.

"This was a completely avoidable error, but I don’t think in the end it will stop her being prime minister," he said.

Sunak supporter Ben Houchen, the Conservative mayor of Tees Valley, said he was "speechless" at the proposal.

"There is simply no way you can do this without a massive pay cut for 5.5m people, including nurses, police officers and our armed forces outside London," he said.

Rachel Reeves, Labour's finance spokesperson, said Truss's plan would have sucked money out of local communities.

"This latest mess has exposed exactly what Liz Truss thinks of public sector workers across Britain," she said.

Sunak and Truss are competing for the votes of about 200,000 Conservative members who will select the next prime minister, with the winner announced Sept. 5.

Taxes have dominated the campaign race so far. Sunak has accused Truss of being "dishonest" with voters over her promises of immediate tax cuts, saying he would wait until inflation is under control before cutting taxes. Truss says that would push the country into recession.

Over 60% of Conservatives in the Techne poll said Truss had better ideas on tax and inflation than Sunak. They also favoured her immigration plans.

However, respondents said Sunak had better policies on Brexit and energy.

John Curtice, a professor of politics at the University of Strathclyde and one of Britain's leading polling experts, said with so little polling it was hard to be certain the race was yet over for Sunak.

"We perhaps don't know quite as much as everybody is confidently asserting," he told GB News on Monday.

"In a race which certainly had seen some fairly radical and bold proposals made by both candidates ... we certainly don't know what impact if any it (has) had on the Tory membership as a whole."
